Last week, we just finished our salon bootcamp. Around 60 salon owners were in attendance, many also bring their staff.
One of the first things I ask the owners is to share one word that describes themselves. This one word gives a HUGE insight into the world of a salon owner. Quite often, it brings tears.
I commonly hear salon owners describing themselves as:
I hear them telling me that “business has taken a back seat to the family”, that they’re struggling with being a “control freak” or “knowing what to do”.
So, how do you describe yourself right now? Take a moment to think about how you feel about your salon right now. You’ve got one word to describe yourself. What is it?
If it’s a negative word, or a word that comes from your exhaustion of working a TON of hours… it’s OK. Feel that for a moment and realise it doesn’t have to stay that way.
Because one thing I notice when clients come back for their second, third or fourth bootcamp – they tend to use different words.
They use words like:
Do you remember when you used to be bubbly and excited about your business.
What would your salon look like if you could tap into THAT?
What would your salon look like if you truely WERE that on a day to day basis?
But that’s easier said than done… right? You can’t just flick a light switch and have all the problems in your business magically disappear.
However, you can get to the place where you are excited and committed to growing your business — but it’s going to take doing something different. It’s going to take working SMARTER, not harder. It’s going to mean taking a different approach to your business.
So, to help you out, I created my Salon Business Checklist. It’s specifically designed to help you see what areas you’re doing well, and which areas need help.
